That question is pretty famous, and I often think of it when I’m trying to find a name for one of my stories. What I soon discovered was that I was really bad at titles. I knew I needed help, so I started by looking at books that were on the shelves and, most importantly, either selling well or enjoying the status of a classic.
So what made these titles stand out, grab the reader? Why did they work? What did I learn from them?
